En-ROADS Videos

The En-ROADS simulator can be used individually online, or as part of the En-ROADS Climate Workshop and the Climate Action Simulation. However you are using En-ROADS, you can improve your understanding of the model’s dynamics by exploring some of our En-ROADS insights. Check out these videos to explore an array of topics — from deep dives on the science driving specific dynamics of the model, to real-life examples of people leading our game and workshop.
